Monsoon All Star Cheer

Tucson Cheerleading


Our competitive cheer program is a competitive and FUN team sport for ages 4-18 years. As a competitive cheerleader kids will learn varying skills from tumbling, jumping, stunting and dancing, while learning to put them together in a routine. Our teams require hard work, dedication, enthusiasm, and most importantly, team work.

Old Pueblo offers full year competitive teams as well as half year prep teams, from brand new cheerleaders to veteran athletes. If you are interested in our teams or program please fill out the submission form at the bottom or email Coach Steven directly at

Full year teams generally go to about eight competitions a year. Most of them are held in the Phoenix or surrounding areas, while the last competition usually involves traveling out of state for a national competition. We generally hold team placements at the beginning of May.  if you missed them you can contact Coach Steven and set up a private tryout. The team(s) will then practice from June-April with a lighter schedule in July.  Full year athletes are required to attend practice and leveled team tumbling class approximately 5.5 hours a week (days and time very from year to year) during the year.

Half year prep teams do not require any form of experience or tryouts. A half year team season goes from December-March/April. These teams are for athletes who are interested in being a cheerleader but are not sure that a full year commitment is the best fit, or for athletes that do other sports or cheer teams and want to learn to be a cheerleader or continue practicing their cheerleading in their off season. These teams practice 3-4 hours a week and learn a competitive style routine and perform at a big competition in Phoenix at the beginning of April.

If you have any questions, please feel free to fill out our submission form at the bottom or contact Coach Steven at

Below is the Monsoon Team Calendar which is currently under construction.  It will include team practice times, tumbling practice times, competition dates and payment deadlines.  Please contact Coach Steven ( if you would like to be invited to this calendar so it will sync with your Google calendar.
